I'm Surprised nobody has mentioned that the Mind Left Body jam out of playing in this show is actually "Can't You See" by Marshall Tucker combined with Mind Left Body. Without a doubt! It was released in 1973. Garcia plays "Can't You See" while Bobby plays "Mind Left Body" with "Can't You See tweakings. Pretty freakin' cool.!!

I, for one, am all for the official release of this show and 11/30. Usually I'm not crazy about shows being cut up, but these two are presented so beautifully I have to take my hat off.

This show is absolutely amazing. The Playin' > MLB Jam is jaw-dropping, unbelievable - contains a lot of the same mysterious energy as does 10/25 from Dane County.

One of my favorites from '73, which is one of my very favorite years, so.....

This is a truly remarkable show; definately a Top 5 of '73 in my opinion. The jam after "Playin'" is truly remarkable, one of the truly great post-1969 expressions of the band's psychedilc roots. I love 1//30 as well, but I'm thinking now this one has the edge, with 12/1 lagging behind quite a bit.

That said, quit whining about what you don't have! Sure, it's nice to have the whole thing when it's a show you love, but if thant's your hangup, get the damn audience tape!

Sorry to go off like that, folks, but with all of the FREE Grateful Dead music in circulation, and with tons more available for easy purchase, I get a bit tired of people screaming like infants that they're missing a few songs here and there or that all of their favorite shows aren't available as pristine soundboards. With THOUSANDS of hours in circulation, the idea that you're somehow getting screwed because everything isn't available is absurd.

Subject: why one should avoid dick's picks
great great show, would be the stalking-horse for all other 73's if not for dick's cut and paste job, The AUD is still there, thanks by the way, but I have to take offence and rate this dick's 1 star. The idea of the releases are welcomed, and I'm game for the purchase, so long as It stays within the collecting sprit, finding value in the repackaging and remastering.
When you chop up a show, and then waste the parts that didn't make it, ??? (PLEASE repost the leftovers.) it's just mean and not well thought out.
I can relate to the idea that a shows highlights are always there, and that the typical left-outs, say mexicali blues or big river sound a lot a-like from other shows, but it's not right to rule out that the tune might be special to someone out there for the most obscure reasons. When a whole show is broken up, it stops being just that, and becomes a commercial, a sampler, far less pure and honest and exciting. If the dick's picks have no problem releasing two versions of the same song on one pick DP 14,, then they could surely find it in their hearts to get everything across once? And sure releasing all that is salvageable is respectable, but putting out all but a single track on 5-2-70 Cold Rain and Snow, which I believe was not damaged, frustrates the collector and reduces the integrity of the dick's brand. If Dick's Picks have not worries releasing a two or more from the same month, even week, May 1977, then why mash together the greats, 2-13/14-70.
Fact of the matter is, this music is highly valued by the many fans, and therefore money is far less the deterant, compared to the fear that supporting the dick's brand, only encourages further tracks to fade away.
I want dick's Picks to be the pride of Heads, not the Headake.

This has to be my favorite show of all time. The way the base and rythym come accross in this recording is just hypnotic, especially in Weather Report. The sound quality of the audience recording actually adds to the strange ambience of this concert. There is a real funky version of Dire Wolf, He's Gone, and Wharf Rat is done perfectly. This show is quite unique.

Subject: Best of the run
This is a warm, dark, and very mellow show. Keith is playing nice things on the piano, especially on the first set numbers, like "Ramble on Rose" and "Big River". There is a flawless Weather Report Suite to close the 1st set.
Second set is weird. Wharf Rat>Halfstep is completely strange, but it works. Playin' is the highlight. Very mellow, gets spacey, then all of a sudden Phil is battling giant dinosaurs, only to resolve into a beautiful jam.
AND they do a sweet Dew encore.
